SUICIDE IS PAINLESS

UHHO- MARKUS CALLS OUT RUMPOLE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!!

UPDATE- A Defendant files a motion to recuse. The County Court Judge responds by giving the attorney the time to file the motion, and then sua sponte revokes and raises the defendant's bond. The same Judge goes nuts at a domestic violence calendar, and queries petitioners as to "who sent you here" and "who told you to file this petition".

Result: The Florida Supreme Court administers a Public Reprimand here on video. (sorry but you have to watch the 15 sec ad first). We encourage all judges to watch it. Because there but for the grace of the JQC go you and we are watching.......


Suicide is painless....But suicide pools are not.

The JBB SUICIDE POOL IS BACK. (C) HR enterprises 2010. All rights reserved.

AND BETTER THAN EVER.

You may be wondering if you are qualified to play.

Here are the qualifications: 1) You read the blog; 2) You like football. That's it.
Oh, one other thing.

NEW SUICIDE POOL RULE ALERT:
There is a special blog email address for your suicide pool pick-

Blogpool21 at gmail.com . You must send your suicide pool pick to that email address.

RULES:

1) You pick one team and one team only every week.
2) That team must win straight up for you to survive.
3) Once you use a team you can never use that team again.
4) Your email MUST be sent (time stamped) before the game. So if you are picking a team playing on Sunday at 1pm, the email must be time stamped by 12:59. If you miss the 1pm deadline, you can still pick a 4pm, 8pm, or MNF game if there is a team in one of those games you haven't chosen yet.

WHO WILL BE THIS YEAR'S GOAT? WHO GOES OUT FIRST? Rick Freedman went out first year one, and then rebounded to win (?) or finish second- we forget- the next year.

Clayton Kaiser is already in for week one, going purple with the Vikes.

No word on whether David O Markus with a K wants to go blog to blog on a challenge as to who can pick the most winners, five games a week, against the spread. He's running a bit scared, as most Harvarrrad guys do when you try and get them to commit to something.

See you in court, talking football.

You pick 5 games and I will take the opposite 5. The spreads have to be the legit spread -- not the ones that you make up on game day that are 2 points better than anywhere else. Let's agree to use the Sheridan line posted on Wednesday. Deal?

Why so harsh Markus? Did you lose out on a big fee today because a client got PTD?

Hmm... the line moves too much between Wed and Sat. USA today usually has a website that posts several lines. We will agree to a publicly posted line. I will find one tonight.

As to my lines being 2 point better....game on crimson boy.

You better be able to pick games as least as good as you can cross an agent, or it will get ugly faster than you can say Dean Kagan.

If you watch all the videos of the various incidents , this Judge should have been THROWN off the Bench. He is totally outragious and does not deserve to be on the bench but in jail.

I agree with the televised disciplines for judges. Especially since we insist on electing them. A lot of them forget that the job is PUBLIC SERVICE.
